address on saturday. here's what he said in south america last week about why we're there. >> our military action is in support of an international mandate from the security council that specifically focuses on the humanitarian threat posed by colonel gadhafi to his people. now, i also have stated that it is u.s. policy that gadhafi needs to go. and we've got a wide range of tools in addition to our military efforts to support that policy. >> what does he need to say tonight? >> he hasn't addressed the american people and done it in a sort of logical way to explain why the it's in the u.s. interest, and particularly with secretary gates saying it's not a vital interest of the united states. how does this differ? i don't think he's going to address this tonight. i think he wants to be deliberately ambiguous about this. but why is this in the united states interest to protect civilians, the humanitarian mission and not what's happening in syria, to protesters. why it's not in our interest to protect the protesters in yemen or in bahrain. so that case has not been made. and i don't think he's

latin america, the economy, he may take one question and have a brief statement but it's the balancing act, why he is no latin america. but obviously acknowledging the major news in libya. >> well, one question's going to one heck of an answer. because i want to know, a lot of people want to know what are we doing in libya? are we going in there to kill gadhafi? if not, what is the plan for gadhafi? what is he to do? if you were gadhafi what would you do? we're going in there with a so-called no-fly zone but limited potential for fire power. going after his command and control center, which is basically him. what is he to do? are we offering him an escape out of country? what end game are we forcing him to. i wish i knew this. war is politics by other means what are the politics of this war? certainly in the short run it's to protect lives of people who would be killed in a slaughter of civil yaians an in benghazi. i hope the american people keep asking that, what are we trying to accomplish here. the news reporting has been unsatisfactory in that regard. i don't know if you are even a

he committed the u.s. to this at all, and why he thought it was a good idea. >> america cannot use our military wherever repression occurs. given the costs and risks of intervention, we must always measure our interests against the need for action. but that cannot be an argument for never acting on behalf of what's right. in this particular country, libya, at this particular moment we were faced with the prospect of violence on a horrific scale. we had a unique ability to stop that violence. and the international mandate for action, a broad coalition prepared to join us, the support of arab countries, and a plea for help from the libyan people themselves. we also have the ability to stop gadhafi's forces in their tracks without putting american troops on the ground. to brush aside america's responsibility as a leader and more profoundly our responsibilities to our fellow human beings under such circumstances would have been a betrayal of who we are. some nations may be able to turn a blind eye to atrocities in other countries. the united states of america is different. >> the unite

call the duck. it said, america now up for grabs, and it was referring to this concert that the rolling stones had in december of 1969. and this was supposed to have been a triumphant affair. they appeared with carlos santana and the jefferson airplane, and they had a hard time sort of finding a venue for this show at the last minute, so they did it at altamont speedway. and it turned out to be a disaster. thousands of people sort of clamored on top of each other to get close to the stage. someone had the bright idea of hiring the hell's angels motorcycle gang to do security, and they paid them, allegedly, with a truckload of beer. it was a really violent scene, so the hell's angels were brutalizing and beating up spectators and probably would have been less violent if rolling stones had played a little earlier. the concert was being filmed for a documentary called "give me shelter," which you probably are familiar with. anyhow, mick jagger was reluctant to play until it was dark because he thought it he wd look better under the stage lights. it was just a violent, ugly scene, and the r

>>> and waging war on unemployment. marc morial examines the state of black america. >>> and i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. with cia operatives already in libya, could the u.s. be wading deeper into the civil war there? the rebels say they need weapons and they need training to counteract moammar gadhafi's richard engel reported he saw that firsthand. >> reporter: on the front line, we saw some of the rebels try and fire a mortar without securing it, so it went wildly off in the wrong direction. and i couldn't believe it, we saw them aim a rocket, what we thought at gadhafi's force, but instead it was pointed in the wrong way and went in the opposite direction, toward a civilian city. >> joining me now, virginia democratic senator, jim webb, a member of the senate armed services committee, a member of the foreign relations committee. you know a lot about war. how about shooting it in the wrong direction? we are wading into something -- i mean, it sounds funny, but it's deadly serious, as you know better than anything. >> well, again, it comes back to what is it that we

, military operation. if america can't do this, if america leaves gadhafi in power, american will look weaker until the region. >> gadhafi must go was said many times by this president and yet this mission is not intent on bringing him down. so i guess the question is -- >> let's just break that fiction right now. that is a fiction. do they not know, mark halperin, inside the white house that they have to drive him from power now for the reasons i stated. because if he stays in power, we've got a very angry man with oil money who will use it to kill americans on u.s. soil. because all of these people that wanted to rush in and said we have to go in and start a war with a third muslim power. this is what they have set loose. >> i agree. at this point there's no other alternative or outcome that's acceptable for america's interest in the region. but it's not a sure thing that he can be driven from power or that if he is driven from power that the vacuum that's left is to american's advantage. it's a dangerous line that's been krosd but it has been crossed. >> the inten is the humanitarian, the

is on the side of gadhafi, he got no votes of support across the u.n. but it is still a potential for america to get sucked into a very dangerous territory where we're not sure who the right rebels are, the right revolutionaries, the people we want to support. so there is natural caution but this is deep dispute for the heart and minds of one man, the president of the united states. here he came out in favor of action, but he took his time. >> richard engel, there are two options we are aware of that the president was offered in libya. one is do nothing, just offer vocal support. the other is what they've chosen to do through united nations which is try to enforce a no fly zone and whatever else the planes may be doing in the air. is there some other set of options that was presented to the president that could reasonably have an effect here? >> reporter: i don't know what options were presented to the president, but you're hitting on something that is essential here. there is a great difference between a no fly zone and a protective shield over the rebels and toppling the regime of gadhafi.
